On the Oakland A’s podcast with Jerry F:

#1 The one thing that teams who underestimate the Baltimore Orioles (4-8) is they have an effective bullpen as starter Jordan Lyles could attest to who pitched five innings and gave up six hits in the Orioles 1-0 win over the Oakland Athletics (7-6) at the Oakland Coliseum.

#2 Jerry all four of the Orioles relievers Paul Frye, Dillion Tate, Bryan Baker, and closer Jorge Lopez shut the A’s out after Lyles was lifted in the sixth inning. The O’s bullpen are the most effective relief staff in baseball right now.

#3 The A’s shortstop Elvis Andrus committed an error that allowed the Orioles Ryan McKenna to score the game’s only run in the top of the fifth inning.

#4 A’s starter Daulton Jefferies had a fine performance himself going six innings giving up three hits on five strikeouts and got excellent relief help from AJ Puk, Jake Lemoine, and Adam Kolarek but fell a run short of a win on Wednesday.

#5 The A’s will try to get in the win column later today as the Orioles will start right hander Tyler Wells (0-1 ERA 1.80) against the A’s right hander Paul Blackburn (1-0 ERA 1.80) a 12:37 pm first pitch at the Coliseum.
